Random Poem:

cold earth, i return

cold earth, i return
recall the water still
birth in the night
how the horses
ran into the hills
the terror, opened
your hands, folded
you into stone
smoothed seven
centuries, your arms
sea and sun, so
sing now, mouth
married sorrows
sing quietly, moth
burning in the lamp
light, lantern pull
burning in the blush
pink hollow palm
